Exploding glass door
Ilve quality has gone downhill. Dishwasher was so rubbish had to throw it away after 3 years. Rangehood has had to be repaired three times and now the oven door glass exploded. Ilve customer service trotted out a standard line that "glass breaks" and weren't really interested in helping me understand how or why it happened and if I replaced the glass would it happen again. Ended up buying a new glass myself just so I could get the oven working again. Crap service!!!!!
Purchased in June 2014 at Winning Appliances for $3,000.00.
Pretty to look at, cooks well when working, quality is rubbish
Had to replace the oven switch on this unit 3 times. The burners stopped lighting after a few years of use. Door hinge has has now snapped. We have had the oven for several years but the I'm disappointed with the quality. For an oven costing thousands of dollars, my replacement oven won't be an ILVE.
Purchased in December 2007 for $3,500.00.
Flashback burned marks
I recently purchased TitaniumT90CLMP/I ILVE Cooker and very disappointed that the stainless steel flashback has now the burned stain appearance. I had a large pot cooking on the back burner with the flame on medium. After finished cooking for only about 30 minutes and noted the flashback has the burned marks on it. There is no where in the introduction manual that I can’t use a big size pot on the back burner. I think it is the design fault. I am sad that my stove does not look pristine anymore.
Very happy, great oven.
We bought the Ilve Titanium T90CLMPS, 4 years ago, and absolutely love it. For a family of six it gets very regular use. Very happy with the size of the oven especially for those bigger occasions. we cook arrange of breads, roasts and sweets and cant't really fault it. We read some good and bad reviews at the time of purchase and in hindsight have no regrets and realise now a lot of reviews focus on the bad experiences. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another in the future. P
Cheap Stainless Steel Quality
The Oven itself is fine.The Material that is used is Garbage and cheap built.The Stainless quality is poor Quality and inside the oven all the shelving is rusted.You pay good money to get a high end oven but it turns out to be rubbish probably made in China.I wouldn’t recommend a ILVE oven.
We have owned this oven for almost 2 years, my husband says it is the worst oven we have ever owned and it does have design problems:
- the capacity is meant to be 90, as it is a double oven it is meant to be 60/30 but the 60 is actully smaller than that inside and my standard size pans and trays do not fit
- steam is a real issue when baking, it is meant to be a moist oven but ventelation is poor so when roasting or making a stew the steam collects, condenses and turns into water which then drips out and pools on the floor
- the gas burners...
Nothing but problems
Despite researching for weeks, I ended up with this lemon of an oven. First, the burners are fiddly to light, especially the back ones. I have to move pots off of the burners, blow on the burners or else they don't light. The timer stopped working, the left hinge on the door is wonky, and now there is this horrible screeching noise from the fan as the oven cools down after cooking. An oven which is incapable of turning out a nice crisp skin on a chicken, I might add. The numbers I was given for customer service when I purchased this don't work any more, and the company that fixed other problems in the past don't service ilve any more either. DO NOT buy an ilve. Any brand would be better than this.
Sold the house and miss the Oven
Whilst I agree with some of the other reviews overall I loved this oven and now miss it madly!
Sold our house and now look back at what were the minor annoyances of this product and feel I had it good after all :). There was a minor issue with the gas being blown out too easily and I felt the control markings were too hard to see (had to put my glasses on) but I cooked some amazing food both in the oven and on the cooktop and since I'm yet to find "The Perfect" any appliance I felt this was as close to perfect as I will ever get. Funny thing...
We bought our Ilve in 2007. Always have trouble with lighting the gas and can never get heat low enough to simmer anything without the flame going out. What we find hard to tolerate though,is that we are now replacing the oven control switch for the second time. We hardly use the electric oven because the heat is so uneven to cook in. .Just totally over replacing the oven control switches which are also an expensive item.
For the price we paid, we expected a much better quality product that would perform reliably as an oven and gas cook top should.
They look great and sound great, on paper, but the bad design and appalling quality is apparent within weeks. I don't understand how Ilve can sell these lemons. If they were a car they'd have been recalled. What a lemon!
Nothing. I rue the day I bought this rubbish.
Hardly know where to start. It takes FOREVER to heat up, the cooking is so uneven that baking cakes is an impossibility - unless you want them lopsided and burnt. The door hinge failed in the first year, the door seals have been replaced 3 times. The knobs fall off, the plasti...
the model is JC906WMP/I 900 cm upright 6 burner gas hob ilve. It was purchased from Clive Peters Aspley Queensland
after one week the LED lights and display has failed.
front gas hob will not light.
i think that ilve is a fantastic product, this model has good safety features i.e. flame cut out and the door is very cool to touch. the oven works great and i am comfident to explore a vast range of recipes because i know the results are there!
i have owned ilve in the past and have just bought the model, i wont own antyhing else
i wanted a 60cm cooktop with two wok burners... this only has one
Questions & Answers
Oven doesn't reach temperature set point.
I have replaced hinges as heat coming out of top of door. Still no good. Oven is 12 yrs old..
Could it be seal or thermostat?
Stove stopped going - but clock is working okay - what next to look at- nothing is working except clock and gas top, stove is electric what to do next?
That happened to us when the oven overheated, we set it at 250 degrees for cooking and it cannot handle that temp. we just waited for it to cool down then the thermostat reset itself and it started working again. If it is something else call ilve support
Hi.The same problem with ours but we still had warranty.I called the Support line and then after a week a technician came over and said it was not worth fixing.I negotiated and got some money back and purchased a Westinghouse Oven.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get it sorted.
ILVE Customer Care
Have an Ilve Majestic Quadra approx 12-18 months. Gas takes ages to light. It lights but the knob has to be held down for excessive periods before the gas will actually stay lit. Annoying us and stresses us enormously every time we have to use the cooktop. The large burner will not stay lit. Any ideas?
It's working as intended. The 'problem' is a feature to prevent you accidentally turning the burner on. You have to hold it down for around 10 seconds for it to stay lit. If you don't, it will automatically extinguish the flame. It's one of those rare occasions when you actually do need to RTFM
Idrolz is right in saying that it can take up to 10 seconds for the sensor to sense the flame and maintain the gas flow. If the large burner doesn't stay lit after that time it could be as a result of the burner components not sitting flat or something obstructing the flame touching the sensor. If problems persist please contact us at email@example.com.
